Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has highlighted key things to be noted by voters as they go to cast their votes on 8th August 2017.
IEBC has carried out massive voter sensitization campaign in a bid to make sure the electorates know what they are required to do come August 8th.
First things first, voters are required to be at the polling stations between 6:00am and 5:00pm. At the polling station, IEBC clerks will require you to produce your original national identity card or a valid Kenyan passport for identification.
You will then be required to place your finger on the KIEM kits for biometric identification. Once verified you will then be issued with 6 stamped ballot papers.
You will then walk into the polling booth to correctly mark the six ballot papers – one for presidential candidates, one for governorship candidates, one for senatorial candidates, one for MP candidates, one for Women Representative candidates and one for MCA candidates.
You will then cast each ballot paper into the right ballot boxes that represent the six elective positions politicians are vying for.
An IEBC official will then mark your small singer with indelible ink to prove you have already voted. Once you have completed the process you are required to leave the polling station.
Watch the video below for visual explanation on how you required to vote on August 8th:
